# Algebra2

Lazarus Long, a character in Robert Heinlein's "Time Enough For Love":

Anyone who cannot cope with mathematics is not fully human. At best he is a tolerable subhuman who has learned to wear shoes, bathe and not make messes in the house.

## Notebook requirements

- Three sections:
- Class notes, in order, each day's notes with the date on the start of a new page.
- Homework, in order, each day's homework with the date on the start of a new page.
- Returned tests for the term.

- Binder, pockets, spiral bound, or whatever: your choice. Just remember that I will collect it two times in the first term to grade it.
- Work MUST be shown in homework where the problem requires any intermediate steps. Answers alone will result in a zero if work is needed.

Here is the Notebook Rubric for when they are collected.

All these requirements are so that YOU can justify that you've done the work to earn the grade, in case I make a mistake or you think you deserve a better grade.

**You are required to have a TI-83 or TI-84 series calculator.**

You may keep your book at home, but that makes it difficult to work on assignments at school.

## Schedule

Rough pacing guide:

- T1: Unit 1 (1, 2, 3, 4), all review material
- T2: Unit 2 (5, 6, 7), new material from here on
- T3: Unit 3 (8, 9, 10), may not finish
- T4: to be determined...
- T5: to be determined...

## Syllabus

Students will represent and analyze mathematical situations and structures in a broader context of linear and nonlinear functions. They will identify essential quantitative relationships in a situation, determine the class or classes of functions that might model the relationships, and draw reasonable conclusions about the situation being modeled. At the conclusion of the course, students will be able to: understand the meaning of equivalent forms of expressions, equations, inequalities, and relations; write equivalent forms of equations, inequalities, and systems of equations and solve them with fluency, mentally or with paper and pencil in simple cases and using technology in all cases; use symbolic algebra to represent and explain mathematical relationships; use a variety of symbolic representations for functions and relations; judge the meaning, utility, and reasonableness of the results of symbol manipulations, including those carried out by technology; understand relations and functions and select, convert flexibly among, and use various representations for them; analyze functions of one variable by investigating rates of change, intercepts, zeros, asymptotes, and local and global behavior; understand and perform transformations such as arithmetically combining, composing, and inverting commonly used functions, using technology to perform such operations on more-complicated symbolic expressions; understand and compare the properties of classes of functions, including exponential, polynomial, rational, and logarithmic functions; identify essential quantitative relationships in a situation and determine the class or classes of functions that might model the relationships; use symbolic expressions to represent relationships arising from various contexts; draw reasonable conclusions about a situation being modeled.
